Guest Feedback

Thank you for another wonderful residential stay for our Year 6 children. You always look after us so well and nothing is too much trouble. The children thought their accommodation was fabulous and the food delicious! We are already looking forward to coming again next year!” – Bolton Brow School

“I celebrated my 70th birthday by booking the whole hostel for family and friends for a weekend. Charlie and Andy not only keep the place spotlessly clean, but provided the substantial breakfasts and dinner on time and piping hot for a mixed group ranging from 2 to 75 years old. They kept the bar well stocked, advised on parking, things to do in the area and answered all questions with a cheery smile. All of us agreed that they helped to make our stay such a lovely and enjoyable occasion.” – Alan White
